4. What about a ‘bucket list’ wrestler, anyone you’d love to work with but haven’t had the opportunity yet?
There are many, but at the top of that list is Kurt Angle. He is my favorite wrestler and a guy that I often study to develop my own techniques. A few weeks ago on RAW, I got to walk out to his entrance theme as one of his security guards. It really was a surreal moment for me. The only thing that would be better is locking up with him in the middle of that ring.
5. What is your favorite part about being involved in the wrestling business? What is your least favorite part?
My favorite part is being out there in front of a crowd. So much of wrestling is how we connect to the audience. I love being the maestro out there, controlling what the audience feels, making them guess, and then giving them a story that is memorable in the end. As far as my least favorite thing, it’s probably practicing patience, ha ha! Sometimes you want good things to happen fast and get discouraged when they don’t. I often have to remind myself that it’s a marathon and not a sprint. So I have to make small opportunities to get myself out there. I have to stay mentally and physically ready and keep the faith that those big opportunities will come my way.
